This has been the first time my youngest son Daniel and I have been out together for a long time. Daniel has been in tech school and just graduated last week. Proud of him and his desire to get started on his career. 49 degree water, 32 degree air temp and thankfully moderate winds. We fished for almost 5 hours in 5 locations and the ones above was our best. We also lost a big fish that just came undone. All on minnows 6lb test Sufix mono…www.sufix.com VMC Bait keeper Hooks www.vmchooks.com and AllPro 7’6″ M/L rods As you know Sufix discontinued the Clear blue Promix sometime ago. I have always been a fan of the “Clear Blue Sufix Pro Mix” because if you were a “Line Watcher” like me or fished at night with a black light it was fantastic. I am just about out of the 6lb Clear Blue here at the house so I have been trying the Sufix Elite Hi-Vis Yellow and here is my findings so far. #1) It is super strong #2) It has great knot strength #3) it cast extremely well due to the G2 Winding Process that we use and #4) The Smallmouth don’t seem to mind-this line all but disappears in the water but still gives you the ability to see that small tick in your line that happens live bait fishing at times. If you liked the Clear Blue you will like the Hi Vis Yellow as well….That’s it for this week…………short week next but I anticipate being able to get out for a day maybe two.
